Dr. Seth Champions Weight Loss for Pain Management, Helping Patients Look and Feel Better

The experienced medical practitioner believes lifestyle interventions could help many individuals improve their quality of life and diminish chronic discomfort.

The medical establishment usually recommends anti-inflammatory drugs to overweight individuals experiencing chronic pain to mask symptoms, but leading practitioner Dr. Nikesh Seth is spearheading a new approach aiming at reversing the problem. He believes excess weight worsens the pain in weight-bearing joints, while weight loss can improve it. 

“It’s a simple observation, but it has profound consequences for the patients in my care,” Dr. Seth explains. “Even losing a few pounds can increase overall well-being and make life much more enjoyable.”

Dr. Seth and other practitioners identify several causes of weight-related pain. For most patients, the lower body is the locus of most symptoms, with tenderness around the hips, lower back, and knees. These joints are subjected to extreme forces because biomechanics puts pressure on soft tissues and fluids designed to reduce friction. Pain often worsens during periods of prolonged standing or physical activity with many individuals finding it difficult to move around. 

Fortunately, supportive individualized weight loss can assist people in mitigating some of these issues, or potentially reversing them. Dr. Seth believes in using a combination of exercise plans and behavioral strategies to enable patients to make lasting changes to their lifestyles. 

“Patients do best when they take a sustainable approach to weight loss for pain management,” Dr. Seth explains. “Strategies don’t usually work unless lifestyle changes fold naturally into their routines. It shouldn’t feel forced and patients should have the support they need to succeed long-term.”

Dr. Seth operates a clinic at Ironwood Square in Scottsdale, Arizona. Patients describe him as someone who “takes his job very seriously” and “is caring and thorough.” Many report getting significantly better and feeling surprised by the results. 

Dr. Seth earned a Bachelor of Science in biomedical engineering from Johns Hopkins University, a medical degree from the University of Arizona College of Medicine, and a residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center that included pain management training. Later, he went on to conduct research to advance pain management treatments alongside clinical practice.
